First of all, can we just a take a moment to appreciate how unbelievably gorgeous this photo of Brooke and her new baby boy is? Her baby looks so adorably sweet...complete and total daaaawwwwwws. And Brooke looks beyond beautiful; she looks angelic! I'm so happy for her #WarmFuzzies.
Second of all, we seem to be getting some summer-on-blink-mode weather around here- it's fall, no wait, it's summer, no wait... - so if you're getting that as well, now is a good time to talk about some warm-into-not-so-warm looks. I love this pic of Summer doing some R & R in her paisley slipdress and sandals. Dressing down a more formal dress by pairing it with flats is an amazing look, and it works just as well with prints as with solids. Summer's thong (dear Autocorrect, Summer is wearing a "thong" sandal, not a "thing") has a touch of embellishment for an extra texture, which I'm definitely on board with. But no probs if you don't have an embellished pair; go for plain - they'll give you a fab, cool-girl vibe just as well. Brooke's gorgeous dress is a dark floral print, which is a super hot trend for fall. Additionally, this trapeze-style is an amazing choice. The flowy fabric is comfortable (air flow, ya know ;)) and just kisses the body here and there, making it sexy, but also incredibly chic. It's a silhouette that's fantastic for the slim and the curvy alike. We don't get to see Brooke's shoe choice, but I'm imagining pretty flat sandals that bring in an extra pop of color. I'm a massive fan of how Brooke made this ensemble thoroughly of-the-moment by adding a leather+metal choker as an accessory. Definitely consider reprising that look! Don't shy away from colored velvet as a possible material, either; it's mad trendy and a fab way to work with the colors in the print. Colored leather or lace would work nicely as well. Both these looks would transition quite easily to fall (#Bonus ..don't you just looooove pieces that can be styled in multiple ways?!). Throw a jacket over the top (think cropped denim over Summer's paisley frock and a military jacket over Brooke's floral dress. Alternatively, a classic leather biker jacket would add a nice touch of attitude to either piece). And swap the sandals for ankle booties: tan suede for Summer's look or black leather - perhaps with a sprinkling of studs - for Brooke's. Happy styling, loves!
